With sustainability in mind, the brand's paperless Digital Silent Salesman has been implemented with all vehicle information (including price list) will be shared digitally.

Meanwhile, all customer parking bays have been equipped with a designated Electric Vehicle Charger.

“The partnership we have with premium dealers such as Sime Darby Swedish Auto is the key to expanding the Volvo brand’s Swedish-inspired ideals and heritage especially within regard to its retail experience, new car sales and customer service improvement,” said Volvo Car Malaysia managing director Nalin Jain.
